A peek inside the book...

 

Wildflowers

 

In the center of the garden

lies a truth none will know

while tears fall in silence

from the mourners' row.

Before a slab of white marble

delicate wildflowers grow

from the seeds of the secrets

you refused to let go.

- Planting Seeds, by Natalie Guttormsson

 

Lover of the Light

 

Why would I want the dead of night?

When I could have the magic of twilight

and the riot of the dawn?

- Planting Seeds, by Natalie Guttormsson

So Much More

 

You are strong.

Remember that.

You don‘t need their words

to build you up

or turn you on.

Ignore the urge to reach out to the past.

You are worth so much more

than your history has to offer.

- Planting Seeds, by Natalie Guttormsson
